Nasri Attacks Arsenal Again

Samir Nasri has once again risked infuriating his former employers by launching a scathing attack on Arsenal.

The French midfielder who moved in the summer of 2011 from Arsenal to Manchester City has cleared that his move was not motivated by money but by the ambition of City to win trophies, something he believes was lacking at the Emirates. The 24 year old won his first Premier league champions medal last season, which he believes has vindicated his decision to quit the North London club.

Nasri said: ‘I’m glad I left because City are far more competitive and are winning titles, not dreaming about it.

‘I have said 300 times I did not leave Arsenal for money, only for sporting aspirations and if people don’t believe me that’s their problem.’

The City playmaker was booed during City’s visit to the Emirates and has surely managed to irk the Gunner fans once again with his latest comments. The Frenchman scored a goal in France’s opening Euro fixture against England which saw them manage a draw in spite of dominating the game for greater periods.

 

Wenger Set To Bring In New Russian Star?

Arsenal are set to replace Andrei Arshavin with his fellow countryman Alan Dzagoev next season after Arsene Wenger has run out of patience with the little Russian.

The 31 year old who joined Arsenal from Zenit in the summer of 2008 has struggled to adapt to the English game and was shipped back to Russia on loan this winter. With the loan deal due to expire shortly, Arsenal are willing to talk about a permanent deal although it’s not clear if Zenit will be keen on having him after he failed to impress during the loan.

However, Arsene Wenger is already contemplating signing another Russian this summer. Alan Dzagoev, the hero of Russia’s last match against the Czechs, is being touted as a possible replacement already. The 21 year old CSKA Moscow midfielder could come for cheap with just a year remaining on his present contract. It is believed though that Chelsea, who are on a summer spending spree, could hijack the player from Arsenal’s grasp. The midfielder who scored a brace in their opening Euro fixture is a self confessed Chelsea fan and might snub the Gunners if the European champions come calling.

 

Chelsea Sign Another Belgian Star

Chelsea set to land the ‘New Hazard’ within days after sealing the deal for the Belgian playmaker from Lille for an astonishing £32m.

Charly Musonda has decided to snub other Premier league suitors and join Chelsea, following the footsteps of conationals Hazard and Lukaku. The 15 year old has been closely followed by scouts from Arsenal and Manchester City but once again officials at Stamford Bridge have beaten them to the signature.

Charly Musonda, the son of former Zambian international Charles Musonda, plays for the Belgium national youth side. Along with Charly, his two brothers Tika and Lamisha are also set to join the London club this summer. After having already spent close to £80m this summer, Chelsea have shifted their focus to the long term future of the club by showing interest in the Musondas and Barcelona young star Sergi Roberto. Although a deal for the latter seems rather unlikely, the arrival of Musonda shows a clear shift in priorities at the club.

The terms of the contract offered are yet unknown but Charly is certainly a huge prospect and can make it big in the Premier league.

Sagna Out For Good?

Arsenal right back Bacary Sagna is set to miss the start of the next season due to the broken leg that he suffered in the dying stages of the last edition of Premier league.

The French defender has had a horrible time dealing with injuries last season and it is about to get worse as he is expected to miss the beginning of next season. This means that Sagna, who is already missing the action at the Euros, wouldn’t be able to accompany the squad for the pre-season to the Far East and Nigeria.

This injury will pave the way for Arsenal young star Carl Jenkinson who joined the club from Charlton last season. But if rumors would have it right, Wenger is looking for a better back up for the injury plagued Bacary Sagna in the transfer market.

Right now, enjoying his holidays Sagna expressed his severe disappointment in having to miss out on the Euros. But he is hopeful that in spite of his absence, France would do well this time.

Sagna said: “The French national team has come a long way since the World Cup and they will be keen to show that.

“They are playing well, are on a good run and should feel confident going into the Euros.

“I am so disappointed to miss it, but I believe France can win.

“It is a big test for France, because I know a lot of the English players but I believe we can win the game and have a strong squad which is together again.”

The French will face England in their first match of the Euros this evening.
